  • Description:
    "On August 14 and IS, 1976, heavy thunderstorms moved through northern California. The heaviest area of precipitation was in the area west and north of Redding, California. The rain felI at such a rapid rate that normal drains could not handle the water and several areas of the city received water and mud damage from the overflow. The Army Corps of Engineers dispatched personnel to the Redding area to compiIe and verify rainfalI amounts measured by the local residents. Their findings showed rain amounts in excess of 8 inches, with rainfalI rates of 2-1/2 inches per hour. This paper discusses the synoptic pattern preceding and during the thunderstorms. The precipitation pattern is discussed, using the radar displays from the WSR-57 radars at Medford, Oregon and Sacramento, California"--Introduction.
